The July update contains new and enhanced features, and GUI and functional changes.
A validation functionality has been implemented to reject at source transactions included in a batch debit order that relate to renewal-fee payments for "definitively closed" European patent applications or granted patents. It will also reject transactions included in a batch debit order that relate to fee payments for transfers of rights in respect of "definitively closed" European patent applications. A European patent application is considered to be definitively closed when the loss of rights or the refusal of the application has become final.
A warning message will alert users to any such rejections.
A message confirming that the payment could not be executed will be generated by the system after validation, and stored in a new folder in the account history.
